Subject: sound is fantastic
that's an amazing recording, thanks!
seems like the odd angles of the 'hall made a nice chamber for the sound from the stage.

(I was just trying to figure out if I should try to figure out how to upload a very low-res but complete iphone recording I did from the 2nd row and thought "gee, I should look and see if there's a chance someone rec-ed and up-ed it")

show was a lot of fun, though Tom was just slightly knackered. still, Tom hit hit notes and most of his marks just fine, though he made Sally slightly nervous when dancing in the cramped stage (with a slight Tom fall near the end of the show)

really enjoying a 2nd listen now!
